[Medical Question] Broken ribs, bruising, and mobility.

Okay, so I've got a ninja with broken ribs. She's got broken ribs on both sides of the ribcage. None of the pieces of the ribs are in her lungs, it's not life threatening, just painful.

So, can I expect to see vivid bruising? If the injury is recent (as in, under a day old)? And what colours would these bruises be? How totally grossness nasty is my lovely little kunoichi's torso apt to look?

Also, how does this effect her mobility? Is there any position in which she can get comfortable without painkillers? Anything you know about broken ribs would be helpful, really.

Medical question about punctured lungs

So, I have a character who is going to die from a punctured lung. He's in the middle of the woods, with a bunch of people who have no idea what to do in a medical crisis, so he's not going to be getting much help. Can anyone tell me about how long it will take him to die? Thanks in advance!

fractured clavicle - rehab and recovery rate

I love this comm. <3 I've gone through tags here with no dice. Did research on my own, but I kept getting lost in generalities and/or medical jargon and while what I've already found is enough to get me through this fic (I think), when one has an unpredictable perfectionist for a muse.... ^^;

Any help anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated.
